The time has come. My new book is available on Amazon. I invite you to click here in order to read the first chapter, or simply get a copy of the book. Here’s what it’s about:
High on a New Mexico mesa top in a tiny mud hut, Lesley King, while on assignment for a magazine, reaches out her hand to pick up a priceless Acoma pot and it crumbles between her fingers. This marks the beginning of a tumultuous journey when her life, like the pot, falls apart. For nearly two decades Lesley has pursued her passion as a travel writer. Her career is the mate she never married, the child she never birthed. But it no longer nourishes her.
While her existence as she knows it dies, her mother, who is her best friend, enters her final days. Lesley, fearful about these losses, knows she has to create a life that will support her body and heart, but she can’t imagine how. As her savings dwindle she has no choice but to turn to the spiritual Power within. She becomes “all in for love.”
Written with vivid prose, a bit of lyrical poetry, and the mystical essence of works by Rumi and Hafiz, this blog-to-book story illustrates the beauty of letting go of the old to usher in the new.
“One must live the truth, not just know it, and this book is a beautiful narrative of living and loving that others may find inspiring to accomplish the same.”—Michael Hock, substance and mental health system designer, poet, and author of The Sky is Walking on the Earth.
“This book is a massage for the soul.”—Lois Gilbert, author of River of Summer, Without Mercy, Returning to Taos, and Lost in the Gila

Congratulations, Lesley. Excited to read your newest creation and imbibe in the inspiration, Love and wisdom that I always experience from your works.
Thank you, Dan. It has been a wonderful experience with the Beloved, and I so appreciate all the encouragement you gave. Enjoy!
I am so excited to read and ponder the gift of love that you share so freely. Congratulations dear one.
Helen, you always inspire with your insights, and I hope the book does the same for you. Thank you!
That’s a wonderfully inviting and compellingly crafted introduction Lesley!!! I can’t wait to imbibe through Bhakti driven imagery as nourished and directed through the Beloved’s Presence. These are exciting times dear one…kudos and congratulations to YOU on a true outpouring of your innermost acceptances and allowances!
I’m glad you liked the beginning, Bobby, and hope you enjoy the rest! Truly, these are propitious times for us all. Thank you for you kind encouragement and many insights that wove their way into this project.
I finished reading your book this morning and, Lesley, it’s beautiful inside and out. I can’t thank you enough for your generosity in sharing so candidly your personal account of the journey. I laughed and cried many times as I resonated with your experiences. I was especially touched by the poem “No Matter” and felt the Beloved comforting my tears. To be so loved, imperfections notwithstanding, leaves me speechless. Fortunately for everyone, you found the words. And now…the rainbow!
